Updated plans have been submitted to complete the conversion of a Watford house into six separate apartments.

The application, revealed on Friday (December 1), features amendments to earlier plans for rear and loft extensions taking place at 35 Bucks Avenue.

This follows an application approved in 2020, which has seen work commence on six apartments at the location.

A design and access statement attached to the application states: "The property is to be stripped out internally and will have new floors and services.

"It will then be extended and converted to create a total of six dwellings with front parking, bin and cycle stores and rear amenity space."


The amended plan, which would see rear and loft extensions added to the development, has been designed to remain sympathetic to its surrounding area.

The statement continues: "The applicant contends that the proposed development has been designed sympathetically in terms of scale, bulk and design, to ensure that it relates well to the scale and appearance of existing buildings as well as the character of the surrounding area.

"Externally, this new scheme is virtually identical to that which was approved in the first application."
